The joint NBC/FOX video site, Hulu, has entered beta testing with a limited number of invites being released so far. If you're one of the lucky recipients, you can check out shows like "24", "Heroes", "Chuck", "Bionic Woman", and "Prison Break" in their full episodic (and legal) glory.
What makes Hulu different is that you can embed these full episodes anywhere you want. One question: will online video aggregators like Alluc, Joox, and Peekvid that have previously linked to illicitly uploaded TV shows now go legit with the new availability of legal uploads?
Hulu also offers a limited selection of movies like "Sideways", "The Blues Brothers", and "Conan the Barbarian" alongside archives of classic shows like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Miami Vice". More classic shows from other content providers can also be found on AOL's In2TV.
In the meantime, while you wait for your Hulu invite (more will be coming out in the following weeks), you can check out the Hulu video player with its video editing, embedding, and sharing features below (click on Menu to access them):
